The glory days of Elvis Presley may be long past, but that didn’t stop ‘The King’ from delivering a rocking Christmas performance along with several other artists during the annual Louisiana Hayride Christmas concert, held Dec. 12 in Salmon Arm at the Salmar Classic theatre.
Vic de Sousa, Lori and Gil Risling, Andrea Anderson and other special guests all delivered knock-out performances from golden-oldies artists such as the aforementioned king, Elvis Presley, Roy Orbison, Patsy Cline and others. A little modern flavour was tossed into the mix as well, with Shania Twain making an appearance on the lineup.
The performance is meant to emulate the classic Lousiana Hayride radio show from the glory days of radio, where some legacy artists got their big break into the public spotlight by performing Christmas tunes. Several of these artists’ classic songs were performed during the show, in addition to their renditions of Christmas songs.
